Urban Tracking (70)

Nadine didn't get back to town in time, so we didn't meet for tracking on Thursday. I had a meeting to attend near the Shelton airport Saturday morning. It's a fairly rural area and I was sure I could find a place to track, so I took Gimme along.

I laid a track after the meeting, which was aged 25 minutes. It was damp, off and on drizzling, with off and on breezy. The breezes were skirting around the buildings (yellow). The black dotted lines between the buildings are chainlink fences.

Given the site, I focused on transitions when I laid the track. Gimme was a little slow to get started, but she got through the 2 transitions on the first leg and through the first turn. As is her usual pattern she used the first leg and turn to get into what she was doing and then did well. She did have difficulty with the second turn, which was right next to the chainlink fence, just as we passed beyond the second building. I didn't really think about the extra challenge of the chainlink, it was just how it turned out. 

Overall she did nicely and I was proud of her.
